  GM LT engine - Biocrawler
The second-generation Chevrolet Small-Block engine, which uses the LT prefix, was introduced in 1992.
The LT family was replaced with the all-aluminum GM LS engine family in the 2000s.
This engine produced 375 hp (280 kW) and 370 lb.ft (502 Nm) for the 1990-1994 Corvette ZR-1 and jumped to 405 hp (302 kW) and 385 lb.ft (522 Nm) for its final year, 1995 thanks to a better intake manifold.

 Engine Compression Calculator | High Performance Engine Calculation
In engines running exclusively on LPG or CNG, the CR may be higher, due to the higher octane rating of these fuels.
From 1955-74, the small-block engine was known as the "Turbo-Fire V8".
The 305 variant of the small-block Chevrolet was bored and stroked to 5.0 L (305 in³) with a 3.74 in (95 mm) bore and 3.48 in (88.4 mm) stroke - taken from the 350.

  Cadillac V8 engine at AllExperts
This engine was modified with a 3.5 in (88.9 mm) bore for the 1936-1948 346 in³ (5.7 L) engine.
For 1964 the engine was bored to 4.13 in (104.9 mm) and stroked to 4.00 (101.6 mm), raising displacement to 429 in³ (7.0 L).
Although the modernized engine was compact and light for its displacement and output, 429 in³ represented the limit of the original architecture's expansion, and it had been surpassed by Chrysler's 440 and Lincoln's 462.

 Wired 10.08: GM's Billion-Dollar Bet
Eight months after Borroni-Bird took the job, a group of engineers from the Swedish company SKF gave GM a preview of a project called Filo they were readying for the 2001 Geneva Auto Show.
Even if the cost of the fuel cell never drops to the level of a gasoline engine, the car built around it might be economical enough to offset the greater expense.
Depending on how cleverly GM can engineer the hardware that will hold the body to the chassis, it's conceivable you could own both a summer convertible body and a winter hardtop, or even slap on the roadster for a Saturday drive and the pickup for a run to the dump.

Shaped like the fins of a turbine engine, they were used to remind onlookers what they couldn't see buried under the rear hatch.
Although work on the interior hasn't begun, Steve Hofmann, one of the many GM employees who helped with the build, assured that it was designed to fit Leno like a glove.

 Jalopnik: roadmaster
Here's something you don't see too often in the self-service junkyards: a '94-96 GM B-body with running gear ready for harvesting (at $200 for any engine, complete small-blocks from the modern era tend to depart within hours of hitting the yard).
Mad power for the day, cheap to upgrade, and well, it pulled the magnificent small GM V8 out of the doldrums of the Smog Era, rife with 305s, 307s, weak 350s, Cross-Fire Injection and whatnot.
Now, we're not sure that the Buick Roadmaster in the linked clip had an LT1 between the rails, but judging from the 1/4-mile time, it seems about right.

 [No title]
Most current GM small-block V8s (the LT and LS series) trace their lineage to the 1955 265 in³ V8 developed for the Corvette.
It was a pushrod cast-iron engine with solid lifters and a 4-barrel Rochester carburetor.
The engine's physical dimensions (oversquare 4.00 in bore and 3.48 in stroke, 102 mm by 88 mm) are nearly identical to the 400 hp (300 kW) LS2 engine of today, but of course much has changed.

 Chevrolet Big-Block engine at AllExperts
The first big-block, by GM's reckoning, was the 1958 "Turbo-Thrust" 348 in³ (5.7 L) originally intended for use in Chevrolet trucks, but also introduced in the larger, heavier 1958 passenger car line.
This engine was replaced by the 409 as Chevrolet's top engine in 1961 and went out of production for cars at the end of that year.
GM continued to use the 7.4 L 454 in their truck line, introducing a new Vortec 7400 version in 1996.

Big news was the introduction of the LT-1 engine (not to be confused with the LT1 of the fourth generation) rated at 360 hp.
Also GM mandated that all horsepower ratings be net and not gross, so now customer's were getting more accurate numbers for the horsepower the car would get on the street.
GM had no choice but to put in more fuel efficient engines because of the fuel crisis, which made Camaro sales nose dive.

 Engine/Induction/Exhaust - Camaro FAQ
The 302 engine was only available in first-generation Z-28s (the 350 LT-1 was used in 2nd generation Z-28s), and was created in response to a Trans Am racing engine displacement limitation at that time of 5 litres (305ci).
This just fit the Trans Am limitation (the bores of the actual racing engines were tweaked to produce exactly 305ci) and this design (with special modifications for high-performance use) resulted in an unusual, high-revving engine that helped create the legend of the Z-28.
For '69, BBC engine mount brackets were redesigned to use the new thicker, narrower, engine mount also used by 302ci and 350ci.

Chevrolet’s TrailBlazer is one member of the trio, which was especially crucial to GM because of the debut of the redesigned Ford Explorer.
GM claimed it was the strongest engine in its class, ready to go against the V-8s in some other SUVs.
GM further claimed that torsional rigidity with the inline engine increased by 260 percent and the rack-and-pinion steering system delivers a tight 36.4-foot turning circle.

GM settled the lawsuit, then promptly declared that all GM engines were "Corporate" property, and therefore they could install any engine in any division's cars without buyer recourse.
GM loves and encourages the mis-perception that the LS is just an outgrowth of what came before, because what came before had a stellar reputation and customer loyalty, whereas the new engine is a clean-sheet design sharing NOTHING except bore center measurements (4.40") and most but not all of the bellhousing bolt pattern.
Oldsmobile engines have rather poor combustion chambers and are prone to "ping" and detonation.

Some 20 to 25 engineers worked on the GM's new SUVs, and they were excited by the challenging performance targets, including power, emissions, mileage, cornering grip, ride quality, interior noise and roominess, even headlamp beam-all of which they believe they exceeded.
The engine is so quiet and smooth at idle that a "starter interrupt" feature had to be added to prevent drivers (initially GM test drivers and engineers) from grinding the starter by turning the key when the engine is already running.

With their optional 315-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine, the trucks will be “the only members of the over-300 horsepower, over-20 miles-per-gallon club” in the pickup segment, GM says.
The base engine is a 2.2-liter four-cylinder with 148 horsepower and 155 foot-pounds of torque; next up the ladder is a 2.4-liter four with 173 horsepower and 163 foot-pounds of torque; then, in the SS coupe, comes the 2.0-liter supercharged four, with 205 horsepower and 200 foot-pounds of torque.
Under the hood, a variety of small-block V-8 engines are used, ranging from 4.8 to 6.2 liters' displacement and 290 to 400 horsepower.

GM says their buyers told them that seven passengers on a five-seat wheelbase didn't appeal to them.
The bottoming was partially caused by a slightly low eight-inch ground clearance under the engine, a result of that clever tunnel through the oil pan for the front driveshafts, allowing that lower engine mounting for better balance on the road.
